CHINA AND AFRICA
August 7, 2013
Hosted by Gavin Graham
Emerging and Frontier Markets Investing with Gavin Graham gets an early start to the Fall season with a look at a complex emerging market – China – and a complex frontier region – Africa. Gavin starts in Hong Kong with Alicia Garcia-Herrero, Chief Economist for Emerging Markets at Banco Bilbao Vizcaya Argentaria. She sees a slowdown – but no collapse -- in China. He talks to Paul DeSisto at M&R Capital Management Inc. in New York about the relationship between China and other emerging markets. He gets an analysis from Richard Gula at the Argyle Companies about new developments in Argentina. Then he talks to African correspondent Samuel Akocha on the line from Lagos Nigeria to look at the growth created by the young population there. He concludes with advice from financial advisor David Much at Much Wealth Management in Santa Monica about how much emerging markets should be in a portfolio. This edition is produced by Al Emid.
